Mapping Frank Lloyd Wright

Frank Lloyd Wright was born 150 years ago on June 8th, 1867. To mark the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth the National Trust for Historic Preservation has released a mapped tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Pope-Leighey House and a map of some of his most memorable buildings.

A Tour of the Pope-Leighey House includes a floor-plan, photos and descriptions of one of the architects Usonian homes. These were modestly sized, affordable houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the average American. The map uses a floor-plan of the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Usonian house in Alexandria, Virginia as a way for users to explore the house. If you select the markers on the floor-plan you can view photos and a description of the selected room.

A Selection of Frank Lloyd Wright Buildings is a map of some of the architect's most iconic buildings. The buildings on the map are organized into four categories: 1910 and earlier, 1911-1942, After 1945 and Lost or unbuilt. If you choose a building you can view a photo, a description of the building and, where available, a link to the building's Wikipedia page or other relevant websites.
